Topshop’s New Window Display

Written by PETA | February 22, 2008

Topshop is one of Britain’s largest clothing retailers, and for a long time now, they’ve been busy doing for animal-free fashion what the Body Shop has done for cruelty-free cosmetics. Not only do they refuse to sell fur or exotic skins, but they advertise their ethical choices with pride. In 2006, they filled the window of their flagship store in London with this beautiful anti-fur display, and this week, they’ve outdone themselves. Check out their latest display, which draws attention to the cruelty inherent in the exotic-skins trade. It’s a piece of art.

    I was really impressed with Topshop until scott pointed out that they sell leather. I hope the display makes a difference for exotic animals but as the saying goes charity begins at homeread local domestic animals.

  • Kathleen Wissenz says:

    Beautiful and what a wonderful message it sends out!

  • rojo says:

    ashes topshop does sell leather and merino wool products they just choose not to sell fur where the animal dies just for fashion.

  • Ana says:

    scott You make a good point and I agree with you. Leather is just as bad it comes from the skins of other creatures such as cows sheep lambs goats pigs for example. Leather is also the skin of animals and should be avoided as much as possible. Being vegan I do and am fortunate there are so many options to choose from and can avoid buying the skins of brutally murdered animals.

  • susie sue says:

    TS I applaud you! Kylie et al sporting those horrid python bags take note. Snakes and crocs and the like feel pain too and their deaths are truly agonizing and distgusting.

  • Maureen says:

    They really are the Topshop in compassion and their clothes are fabulous as well!

  • Joel says:

    I walked by this today.

  • Courtney says:

    Brilliant. Top Shop is not only an amazing clothing store but a great practicer of what they preach. Great display.

  • Ashes says:

    I would be interested to learn about the relative profit margins of this chain of stores compared to those than do sell shoes handbags coats etc. that use leather other skins wool or fur. It seems like with shoes and handbags in particular there is a huge market for leather snakeskin etc. as there are not many high quality brands or designers not using leather at all.

    2006? Perhaps I misread the blog post but that display is on Oxford Street now

  • rose says:

    Cool! Fur is SSSOOO going out of style!

  • Amber Falobas says:

    I’m gonna start shopping there D

  • liliana says:

    This is very nice! very good for this people we need more hearts like this in this torturer world

  • Ashley says:

    I love it it’s so cute! I love snakes and reptiles in general. I was talking once with a friend about one of my pet snakes and they said the only thing snakes were good for was belts shoes or handbags. You can bet I haven’t talked to them since!

  • scott says:

    That is great. But Topshop uses leather. And has many leather bags and shoes on their website. Isn’t that just as bad?
